Rendala, the Mikea

A 62’ documentary directed in 2015 by Alain Rakotoarisoa

In the south-west of Madagascar lies a great dry forest. For centuries, the Mikeas lived there peacefully, out of hunting and food-gathering.

For the sake of the forest, strongly encouraged by an environmental protection program, Rendala left his birth place and the rest of his community for the little village of Andravitsazo, a few kilometers away, attracted by the modern world and the promise of a brighter future.

Five years later, he only found bitterness. Where are the water, medical center and school he had come for? What will he do next?
